get your burg on

  • Rich Person: I got a burger that wasn't exactly how I asked for it once so nobody DESERVES a higher minimum wage
  • Foodservice Worker: You stupid, ignorant piece of shit.
  • Foodservice Worker: Let me explain you a thing:
  • Foodservice Worker: Your precious burger was made wrong for one of two reasons; either the restaurant was understaffed and the few people in it were rushing to get too much work done at once and an honest mistake happened, or some kid who didn't know better or just didn't care made it.
  • Foodservice Worker: And believe you me, if some idiot kid is screwing up peoples's orders on a regular basis, the restaurant would LOVE to fire them.
  • Foodservice Worker: But they CAN'T, because they're so goddamned understaffed that they can't afford to lose ANYONE, not even their worst employees.
  • Foodservice Worker: And why are they understaffed? Because the corporation that owns the restaurant is only willing to pay the minimum wage allowed by law, which is far below a comfortable living wage.
  • Foodservice Worker: Almost nobody is WILLING to take on a job like that for so little money, so nobody takes the job, so they STAY understaffed all the time and they can't hire anyone to replace the people they desperately want to fire.
  • Foodservice Worker: If the minimum wage went up, there would be WAY more people willing to take the job. They'd have so many applicants, they could afford to get rid of all but the best employees. Anyone wanting to keep their job would actually have to learn to work hard and try to earn it.
  • Foodservice Worker: They'd all be competing so hard to do the best job they can, you'd never get bad service or an incorrect burge again.
  • Foodservice Worker: So get this through your thick fucking skull, you piece of human garbage:
  • Foodservice Worker: If you expect this job to be DONE RIGHT. and DONE QUICKLY.
  • Foodservice Worker: Then it is worth $15 an hour.
  • Foodservice Worker: If you don't agree then you can learn to cook your own damn meals, you inept fucking man-infant.
